Travel Close to Home: Enjoy a Play-cation

Travel Close to Home: Enjoy a Play-cation

We can't all head out on a fancy vacation this Summer. But that doesn't mean we have to be stuck at home, doing the same old thing. How about trying this out, where the only cost is a little extra gas and a few minutes searching online?

Try out a new playground!

Even though playgrounds are often just variations on a theme, you'll be amazed at how much joy a new see-saw or slide can bring. And who knows? You might even encounter some new friends while you're there.

If you need a little help locating playgrounds in your area, try a site like or Map of Play. Plug in your postal code for a quick search. While you're at it, leave a review of your regular playground for other moms and dads to find.

Don't forget plenty of sunscreen, hats, and water. For an extra treat, pack a picnic lunch! Enjoy your play-cation!
